RTC 6.0.2 iFix005: Is there a way to query an enumeration list for work items where there are no values selected?

I have several enumerated lists in my work item.

From a quality check perspective, I would like to be able to query for those work items, where the user hasn't checked any values.

I have 18 values in the enumeration list and selected the "not containing" option in the query editor and selecting all values doesn't work.

There is the "exists" option, is there a corresponding "does not exist" option?

As far as I understand, Enumerations can not have no values. An enumeration has a default and an unassigned value. So it always has a value. A work item can not have the attribute at all though. You can show the items not having the value in the process configuration.

Is there any thought to allowing enumerations (multi-pick) to not have a default value?  Or if there is a default value like "unassigned" is there a way to suppress the unassigned value from displaying in the presentation?

Have you tried the Eclipse client for creating this query? If I remember correctly, I think there is an "Unassigned" checkbox in the Eclipse, but not Web client...(sorry, I am not near my installation at the moment to double check).

Hi Sterling!

I did try it from Eclipse but it only give the values I have in the enumeration.  I did not create an Unassigned value.
